Trevor Bauer had 14 strikeouts on Sunday, matching a Mexican League record with nine in a row as the Diablos Rojos del Mexico defeated the Bravos de Leon 4-0.

Bauer, 33, equaled a Mexican League mark set by Jose Ramon Lopez in 1964 and tied by Gary Williams in 1979.

The right-hander pitched six scoreless innings with one walk to earn his first win of the season. He signed a five-game contract with the Diablos Rojos.

Bauer has been trying to revive his big league career after serving a 194-game suspension for violating MLB's domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy.
